A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...e nodules only on their roots. The researchers sequenced (3) the genes of two bacterial strains of Bradyrhizobium, ORS278 and BTAi1, in order to find out their genetic make-up and identify the genes involved in this rather special form of symbiosis. These bacteria were found to have no nod genes, usually e...

Caribbean frogs started with a single, ancient voyage on a raft from South America

... said. To make their discovery, the researchers sequenced the DNA of nearly 300 species of Caribbean, Central American, and South American frogs and used three mitochondrial genes and two nuclear genes in their study, building trees of relationships among the species and timing the divergences of the specie...

Exploring the dark matter of the genome

...mage. Both heterochromatin and euchromatin are sequenced using a method called whole-genome shotgun sequencing. Celniker says, "We grind up whole flies and produce libraries of DNA fragments of two sizes, some that are 2 kilobases long" -- a kilobase (Kb) is 1,000 bases -- "and some that are 10 kilobases l...

Mutating the entire genome

...tated. Because the whole mouse genome has been sequenced – the order and location of base pairs determined in detail – scientists can identify locations in individual mice where the jumping genes have carried pieces of loxP DNA. Then, they can select a mouse with loxP on both sides of the large piece of DN...

Genome of Clostridium botulinum reveals the background to world's deadliest toxin

...C. botulinum genome are absent from the other five sequenced clostridia, and only 16 per cent of the C. botulinum genes are common to all five. Our findings emphasise just how different clostridia are from each other." C. botulinum toxin stops nerves from working — the basis of its use in medicine to cont...

Corals -- More complex than you?

...mes of several iconic Australian species have been sequenced overseas, and we are being left behind. If important discoveries leading to new technologies are made, we will have to pay to import them. "Sequencing a coral genome is a real contribution which Australia can make to human knowledge ?with potentia...

New technique will produce a better chromosome map

...ome of the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, was sequenced in 2000, and yet its relationship to chromosome structure remains unclear. "Since we want to know what genes are involved in the development of different structures in living systems, this is the first structure to look at," Novikov said. "This i...

Genome of yellow fever/dengue fever mosquito sequenced

...equencing DNA in chromosomes, scientists have also sequenced large amounts of messenger RNAs collected from different mosquito tissues at distinct developmental stages. Matching a messenger RNA to a predicted gene will validate authenticity of this gene." The TE team, lead by the Tu laboratory, uncovered a...

The pink microbial ...

Horse genome assembled

..., which means, on average, each base pair has been sequenced almost seven times over. Researchers can access the horse genome sequence data through the following public databases: GenBank ( www.ncbi.nih.gov/Genbank ) at NIH's National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI); NCBI's Map Viewer ( www.ncbi.nl...

"The sequencing of the rhesus macaque genome, combined with the availability of the chimp and human genomes, provides researchers with another powerful tool to advance our understa...

Scientists sequence genome of parasite responsible for common sexually transmitted infection

"Parasites generally have smaller amounts of DNA than non-parasitic organisms, but in this case, there was ten times as much DNA than we originally thought there w...

Kronstad is now using his NSERC-funded research as a foundation to fight an outbreak of the yeast fungus Cryptococcus on Vancouver Island, applying his res...

Deep in the ocean, a clam that acts like a plant

"The difference here is that while plants get their energy and carbon via photosynthesis by chloroplast symbionts, this clam gets its energy via chemosynthesis," said Jonathan Eisen, a professor at the UC Davis Genome Cente...
